And the bullock [for] the sin offering, and the goat [for]
the sin offering
The one for Aaron and his family, the other for the people of Israel, of which see ( Leviticus 16:5 Leviticus 16:6 Leviticus 16:9 Leviticus 16:11 Leviticus 16:15 ) ; whose blood was brought in to make an atonement in the holy [place];
the holy of holies, where it was brought and sprinkled, as directed in ( Leviticus 16:14 Leviticus 16:15 ) ; shall [one] carry forth without the camp;
by command, as Aben Ezra observes; by the order of the high priest; and, perhaps, more than one was employed to carry out those carcasses, they being too large for one man, and as it seems from a following clause; and the Targum of Jonathan is,
``they shall be carried out on staves by the hands of the junior priests;''so Jarchi says F18, four men carried two staves, two before and two behind, and they went staff by staff, and the bullock and the goat were upon them, and they carried them one upon another: this was done after the high priest had done to them what was necessary; for so it is said, he went to the bullock and to the goat that were to be burnt; he ripped them up and took out their inwards, and put them in a bowl, and offered them on the top of the altar; and cut them with cuttings (made incisions into the flesh of them, but did not part it), and ordered them to be carried out to the place of burning, which was without the camp of Israel, and afterwards without the city of Jerusalem: the mystery of this, and the application of it to Christ, setting forth the nature and place of Christs sufferings, are fully and largely expressed by the apostle in ( Hebrews 13:11-13 ) ; and they shall burn in the fire their skins, and their flesh, and
the priests, as Aben Ezra; for there were more than one concerned, as in carrying them out, so in the burning of them: the high priest was not concerned in it, for while these were burning he was reading, as observed on ( Leviticus 16:24 ) ; so that he that saw, the high priest when he was reading, saw not the bullock and the goat when they were burnt; and he that saw the bullock and the goat burnt, saw not the high priest when he read; not because it was not lawful, but because the way was distant, and the business of both was done together F19: this was done in a place called the place of ashes F20, where the ashes of the altar of burnt offering were carried; (See Gill on Leviticus 4:11) and (See Gill on Leviticus 4:12).
